Team Needs

1. Cornerback
2. Defensive Line
3. Tight End

Make it four straight seasons finishing bottom four in yards allowed and three straight bottom two in yards allowed per pass attempt. The pieces are there up front, but they are leaps and bounds behind in the secondary, outside in particular.

Key FA: RB Jamaal Williams, S Will Harris, LB Alex Anzalone

Depth Chart Fantasy Impact

The Lions traded up 20 spots to grab WR Jameson Williams with the 12th overall pick of this spring’s draft. The Alabama product has elite speed, averaging 19.9 yards per catch with 4 TDs of 70+ yards last year. He tore his left ACL in January, though, and probably won’t be ready for the start of the 2022 season.

Detroit added more speed to the WR corps by signing free-agent WR D.J. Chark, who clocked a 4.34-second 40-yard dash at the 2018 Combine. Chark struggled with injuries the past couple of years in Jacksonville but posted a 73-1,008-8 line in his 2nd NFL season back in 2019.

Williams and Chark join last year’s top 3 target-getters in WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, TE T.J. Hockenson and RB D’Andre Swift.

The Lions didn’t make any significant additions on the offensive line but should be healthier after losing C Frank Ragnow for 13 games last year and LT Taylor Decker for 8.
